The Workout Of the Day
WOD is "Workout of the Day." The great folks at CrossFit951 post a workout for each day. When a WOD is performed RX’d, that means the athlete performs all movements using the prescribed weight and reps. In CrossFit, all WODs can be scaled to meet your fitness level, but the goal is to get to a place where the RX is challenging, yet doable.
Of course it's hard. It's supposed to be hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. Hard is what makes it great.

Strength & Technical Execution
The focus of Barbell Club is to improve technical execution in our Olympic and Power Lifts. At Barbell Club you can expect to snatch, clean & jerk, deadlift, bench press & perform auxillary exercises that will help improve those specific lifts. Do not expect to perform met-con WODs during this class. The Barbell Club format will be geared towards an intermediate level 951 CrossFitter. By our standard an intermediate level CrossFitter is someone who has attended our fundamentals program and has been CrossFitting for at least 6 months.
The Unknown and Unknowable
In traditional running, there has long been a philosophy that 'more mileage is better' when training for running races like half and full marathons. However, CrossFit Endurance doesn't believe in this archaic philosophy. Instead, CrossFit Endurance centers on completing 60-minute interval workouts several times a week. While CFE WODs can help you prepare to tackle things like half and full marathons or adventure races, you don’t have to be a runner to sign up. The class is a way for any CrossFitter to boost endurance and build explosive strength. CFE is most effective when done in tandem with weekly CrossFit WODs. Two to three CFE days combined with three to four regular CrossFit days each week will have a CrossFitter seeing gains that would normally take months to accrue with CrossFit alone.
Chance can allow you to accomplish a goal every once in a while, but consistent achievement happens only if you love what you are doing.
